Soccer Blanks Southwest Missouri State, 2-0
Nov. 8, 2000
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Behind a first half goal by junior Stacey Tullock and a second half goal by freshman Patrice Feulner, the Arizona State women's soccer team (14-6-1) shutout Southwest Missouri State (12-11-1), 2-0, tonight in a first round NCAA game at the Sun Devil Soccer Stadium.
With the win Arizona State advances to the second round to face 12th-ranked Portland on Saturday, November 11 at 2:00 p.m. MST (Arizona time).
The Sun Devils 14th win marks a school record, while the victory was also Head Coach Terri Patraw's 50th career.
'It was a great win for us, and great for the state of Arizona,' Patraw said. 'Scoring a goal early on is what we wanted to do and we accomplished that.'
The Sun Devils tallied their first goal in the 39th minute when Tullock received a pass from Feulner, then dribbled the ball around the right side of the box, kicking the ball into the far left side. Sophomore Holly Cohen started the play from the right wing, making a touch pass to Feulner. Tullock, who was just named to Soccer America's Team of the Week (second time this year), tallied her 14th goal of the season and her seventh game winner.
In the second half, Arizona State came out with a more aggressive front, having one apparent goal called back for offsides.
However, just eight minutes into the second half, Fuelner found the back of the net as she went one-on-one with the goalkeeper, beating her to the right with the open net. Cohen also had the assist on the play as she again slid the ball through tight traffic to a streaking Feulner.
Arizona State posted 10 shots (six on goal) to SMS's eight. Each team recorded five corner kicks and four saves apiece.
